Herbed Parmesan Dressing


If you love a tart salad dressing rather than a sweet one, this recipe is for you. There is no added sugar in this recipe but a whole lot of flavor! I will let this sit overnight in the refrigerator so the flavors can meld together. Tomorrow I am going to make a Ham Pasta Salad and use this in it instead of mayonnaise or Miracle Whip like I usually do. This dressing is also great on your salads.






Combine all of the ingredients in a sealed

container that you can shake.



Shake it really well and refrigerate it overnight.

Shake it again and serve over a lettuce salad or pasta salad.


Herbed Parmesan Dressing



  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil (or olive oil)
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp vinegar
  • 2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 Tbsp mustard
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder


  1. In a container with a lid that can be shaken, add all of the ingredients.
  2. Shake until completely combined.
  3. Refrigerate overnight, shake and serve with salad or mixed with pasta

  1. Ok, this is one I have to try. I really can’t have sugar or dairy. However, I can substitute nutritional yeast for the Parmesan cheese and then it becomes vegan. I would also use fresh lemon juice vs bottled lemon juice (but I have lemons on-hand at all times). This looks really good.

  2. This sounds so good and I wouldnโ€™t have thought to put it over pasta salad! Itโ€™s so hot here and I donโ€™t feel like cooking at all when itโ€™s like this but I think I can manage boiling pasta and pour this over it with some veggies ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks for this!!
